Hmm...I read that and it seems robotrippin gives you all sorts of psychedelic effects, but I just got really tired. That wasn't fun.
Cleaned my apartment except for the floors, which are a pain and I need to get cleaner for anyways. Gonna leave in an hour or so and will be back here sometime tomorrow. Hopefully it doesn't get icy or anything or my boyfriend might not be able to show up. It'll rain/ice tomorrow, but there's already enough snow on the ground to make it a white Christmas. It's bright and sunny out now.
We got the dog a new beef bone and he has been chewing it passionately for over an hour. He finally gave up and flopped over in exhaustion. I guess it must just be that good?
He followed me home, can I keep him?
Everybody here would have been proud of me today at work.
I was got to work this morning with my voice to about 50% strength, able to talk clearly but still with a bit of gravel in my voice. About an hour it went back to being just being above a whisper or a deep gravelly noise. About two hours ago my voice started coming back, and this guy I work with told me I sounded like Batman... and then he tried to imitate Scott Bale's Batman voice going "Where's Harvey Dent?!"
So I put a bit of bass in my voice and forced out a "WHERE'S HARVEY DENT?!" in response, nailing the voice dead on.
The force of doing that impression cleared my throat enough and brought my voice back to where it was this morning when I came into work, which is nice... but now I can't do that impression again because my voice usually sits in the baritone range, not bass. :-(
It's just after 10:30 & santa's been spotted coming this way.
I think I'll load a rifle, grab a drink of Rum & go sit outside & be quiet .
mmmm fresh venison :)
Merry Christmas folks... be happy & safe
It never fails...
I cook the food, and I don't feel hungry afterwards.
I made bow tie pasta with a browned butter sauce...
Green bean casserole (very American this time...)
and the fillet mignon is done in a few minutes.
But I don't feel hungry.
I mean, I had a garlic shake this morning after I ran. (Protein powder, blueberries, strawberries, spinach, soft cactus pads, and 3 cloves of garlic... I swear, it's not all that bad.)
But that was 6:30 in the morning.
I'm watching a Jesus movie in Spanish... it's my favorite one. Very historically inaccurate (the virgin mary makes tortillas in this one.)
But it was special because I thought Jesus was Mexican... and that still makes me laugh.
Marry Christmas, everyone.

I went through some stomach problems earlier this year...what they allow you to 'eat' in my case really sucked !
Here's hoping you get through it without too much suffering Avie.
no cheating !
I'm feeling really good so far with it, the surgeon is a miracle man.
I don't plan to cheat because if I do it would probably actually mess things up pretty bad in there and then I might wind up in a much more painful and difficult situation since part of why everybody was so happy with this surgery is nothing was done to my esophagus prior, no botox, no balloon. Clean slate to work from. So yeah, I definitely plan on following orders and being very cautious.

I've had the same problem!!!!!!!
I've been cooking/baking all week, and for like the last 3 days, I've had no appetite at all.
Anyway, I'm happy to see the sick people back, <3 you all, and Merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas for all the sick ones out there.
Umm.... yeah... our supper wasn't all that great... *cough*
We've already opened the presents... Latin tradition to open the gifts on the eve of the night instead of the early morning.
I actually had good presents this year.
King of the Hill seasons 2 and 6
280 dollars (wow-- that's a lot)
books (Where the Sidewalk Ends)
and my membership to the SF Playwright's guild.
This was a very costly christmas for my family... so I'm paying their credit cards with the 280 as my final final gift.
I've decicded that despite my being sick with only about half of my voice, I'm going to my grandmother's christmas party. I'm just going to load up on meds and make it a point not to breathe on anybody. I just can't stand the thought of staying here by myself today. :-\
And Seven? I did get your card. Bacon and fun times were had by all.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!!

I found out yesterday there's a movement in my family to give me gift cards & some dinners out at a couple of our 'nicer' resturants.
I've been so bummed out by the commercialism of Christmas for so long & have made a stand against presents being given to me for more than 3 years & every year, they try something...just a little something "it's not much" & then I have to go into my speil of thanks but no thanks....
I'm so pissed off .
WHAT PART OF ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS COMPANY & NO PRESENTS.... can they not grasp ?
So fuck it...I'm boycotting the family today.
They can have their Christmas , I've sent all the food we've prepared so their meal will not be compromised.
They can give each other all the presents in the world...me I'm going for a walk, phones turned off & I think I'll try some fresh haddock for my dinner later this afternoon.
Hope you all have a merry christmas, next year I'm going to try to be on a Caribbean beach. This way I don't stress them & they can't stress me !
Merry Christmas everyone!
I gave my parents a 4BG Kingston pen drive. My dad almost cried.
And ate sooooo much. My Grandma prepared Christmas lunch and Christmas Eve dinner.

I stuffed butter mixed with spices under the skin of my turkey.
Then during the last hour of cooking, I layed bacon over the breast.
If my turkey doesn't come out mind blastingly awesome, I blame evil gnomes.
MMMM Funk....turkey bacon mmmmmmm
I'm just frying some fresh haddock, its pretty good, damn hot right now, but pretty good.
It was worth dumping in half a beer to make the batter lighter.
Traipsed through the snowy woods with Husker and my sister's puppy. She was delighted. Now I'm drinking mulled cider by the fire and smelling the smells of baking pie and Christmas ham.
Merry Christmas everybody!
He followed me home, can I keep him?
Merry Christmas all! To health and happiness in the upcoming New Year.
Hope everyone has a good time with family (and everyone invariably drives each other completely crazy ;) ), friends, or wherever you're at.
In our family the tradition is to start the morinng with mimosas (champagne and OJ), which should give you an idea of how Christmas is. Big family, starting the morning with booze....
Wouldn't have it any other way.

Why the hell did my parents buy me a Snuggie? Don't get me wrong, I got a lot of other nice gifts, like Spirit Tracks and the spa package, but WTF?
I did get some wine glasses and will break them in tonight. Tomorrow my boyfriend will visit for the weekend.
Merry Christmas all!
We visited my wife's step-sister in Boston and saw our 18-month-old nephew and that whole side of the family. Probably won't make it back home to do anything with my family this year. With work and a winter class starting next week, I won't have a month of free time to do stuff with them like I did last year. I got $100 in old navy gift cards a fleece and a Dell netbook. The nephew got an inflatable ball-pen thing. I am mega jealous of the little squirt now.

I can sympathize with that. Several years back I asked my folks not to get me anymore cologne as a gift because generally I don't wear cologne unless it's a special occasion, so it winds up just collecting dust. I actually gave away a box of very nice colognes to charity earlier this year. I just don't use them.
I unwrap a box this morning, and what do I find but a two bottle set of Stetson cologne and aftershave. :-|
Hope everyone had a good christmas, I got Assassin's Creed 2 and some DVD's...long DVD's. I probably need a few more days before I'll be able to drive or leave the house for long periods of time so I need these sorts of distractions so I don't go stir fucking crazy....it's already starting to set in where I seem to just have too much free time.
my christmas has seriously sucked. I travel to texas for the weekend for some much needed rest and relaxation... and to meet a girl I've been talking to. after 1 christmas eve date to go see Old Dogs (great movie BTW and that says a lot coming from a guy who does NOT like seeing movies) she says we don't "clique" and dumps me. so now begins my boneheaded quest to talk some sense into her. I reminded her of all the other guys she has "cliqued" with and reminded her of what happened.... every... single... time. Not to mention she spend over an hour telling me about every one of them and how they all broke up with her for various reasons and how many of them she caught cheating on her.
I also discovered my inner dark side and also discovered I'm a hopeless dumbass fool. Mr. T pities me. Cause I'm a Foo'
I'm not crazy, everyone else is.
I'm damned if I do & damned if I don't.
So in the true spirit of christmas of today ,I've decided that what others want isn't going to sway me in what I want ! ! !
Proteas I went & visited that chainmail owning friend yesterday & remembered my camera.
He says its a 42 long, & took about a month to make in his spare time... the maker not my friend who owns it.
As you can see its very flexible, heavy but you have good movement ability when your in it.
You can see he made it like a long piece & then joined it under the arms . It has no fasteners for the front, just a lacing that isn't on it.

I realize that that's a really simple pattern, but I just can't see myself doing something like that. I would go crazy then. Pretty cool, though Did you get to try it on? :-D
I took my chainmaile rings and pliers with me when I went to the family reunion back in October, that way I could sit in one spot and have something to do. My grandmother saw me making a Persian Dragonscale bracelet using aluminum wire, and she asked me to make her one for Christmas. I wish I would have had the presence of mind yesterday to use my new-ish camera to take a picture of it for everyone here, but.... here's a good picture of the same weave but made from brass wire to give everyone a general idea.

Oh yeah...that's how I know its fairly heavy.
It would never lace up on me, I'm built like yourself & it wouldn't close...even with it's 'elasticity' aka pulling all the links apart as far as they would go ;)
THe guy who built it does a lot of stuff like you describe, he says its popular as gifts & he can do them fairly quickly , but he works on the bigger projects like this one for certain amounts of time each day. like one of those huge jig saw puzzels my kids used to do. they have 10000 pieces & you need a space where it can stay & be worked on over a period of time.
He's also done panty's & Bra's , they are actually more popular than I thought...seems once one girl buy's one, & shows it off to friends, others want a set as well , plus there's the bonus of him having to fit the girls ;).... sounds like it would be the best part of the whole build.
He had a full chainmail hauberk with a hood that would fit me about 2 /3 years ago, but he wanted around 1000 dollars for it, although he offered it to me for a couple of hundred less...it was damn heavy, came down to about 3 inches from my wrists, covered my ass all the way around...biggest piece he's ever done.
I didn't buy it, what was I going to do with it ?
